State's health care exchange to open Tuesday

State's health care exchange to open Tuesday

Enrollment under the Affordable Healthcare Act starts Tuesday -- nationwide.

New Yorkers can shop for and enroll in a plan at the "New York State of Health" online exchange -- even if they're employed.

Todd Muscatello -- with Excellus Blue Cross -- says lower income people may be eligible to have their premiums reduced with a government tax credit.

Anyone without healthcare coverage next year faces a penalty unless they have health insurance through an employer, a government program or by purchasing his own plan. For more information use this link to the New York State of Health website.
